The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage Prepares a ‘Popcorn’ ThemeRelease: TBC
Sure, Michael Jackson wasn’t actually wearing a pair of Nike Blazers in his iconic ‘Thriller’ film clip but, if he was, this would’ve been the perfect pair – especially when you consider how that clip has been immortalised for a whole new generation thanks to the delightfully decadent popcorn eating gif. Team Swoosh have really buttered up the popcorn theme on this Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage, hitting the model with multiple references to the popular movie theatre snack.
The stripey tongue tag is an obvious popcorn-inspired touch, but the heel branding also carries the vibe, while the insoles will have you salivating thanks to their enticing graphic. Elsewhere, the lateral heels feature a ‘fresh since 77’ script, while metallic gold aglets match the golden popcorn hangtag.
The Blazer Mid ’77 showcases Beaverton’s renowned hardwood heritage by delivering a versatile silhouette that completes a variety of looks. Nike say they’ve deliberately designed this retro release to make it ‘look like you’ve been saving them for years’. Carefully constructed from the beginning to the end, the finished product includes a throwback Swoosh for historical accuracy, and a padded collar for modern comfort.
Pairs of this popcorn-infused Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Vintage will be coming to a store near you very soon, with Nike and selected Swoosh stockists expected to provide the best flavour.
